Spring give-away is here!! I’m giving away autographed copies of my newly published novella, Labyrinth: Heart of Stone. Leave a COMMENT below to enter!! Entries accepted now through March 31st, when I will pick a winner. You can also enter at the following:
Hey there, readers, friends, and fans! It’s time for my quarterly give-away, and December is all about demons and dragons!
This month’s winner will receive autographed copies of Bloodmaiden, my award-winning young adult fantasy novella featuring all things dragon, and Demon Queen, my newest Zelda fanfic. Of course, with Zelda being property of Nintendo, I can’t actually sell the paperbacks (not out to get sued anytime soon); I’ve created them just for funsies, while the free ebook download should be available for download via Smashwords soon. Point being, if you want an actual hard copy, my give-aways are the only place that’s possible!
To place an entry, simply leave a comment on this post anytime from now through December 31st. God bless, happy reading, and best to all who enter!
After some debate, I’ve decided to try the whole author newsletter thing again, but this time, I’m starting off slow with a quarterly release to see how things go. With my busy work schedule and such, quarterly option might work best for me. The newsletter will include info on my upcoming publications, writing advice, info on my quarterly give-aways, and more! I’d also like to create a section where folks can ask me questions and I can get to know my readers more.

The first issue will be released this December!
Juuuuust a reminder that December 1st marks the official beginning of my “Dragons and Demons December“!
My award-winning YA Fantasy novella, Bloodmaiden, as well as my newest Zelda fanfic, Demon Queen (written for funsies, because y’all asked for another one, and because Ghirahim is the BEST villain), will definitely be involved.
Stay tuned on December 1st to see wassup!
I’m going to be changing my monthly give-aways on Instagram and Facebook to quarterly give-aways. The reason for doing so is several-fold:
1. To be able to focus more of my time and resources into creating more quality books and connect with more readers.
2. To create better-quality give-aways; I think it’s better to host four bigger give-aways a year that folks really get into, than to do one every month because I feel like I *have* to.
3. To be able to focus more on digital give-aways; I LOVE print give-aways, but digital will allow me to budget better and reach more new readers.
The give-aways will run each March, June, September, and December.
These give-aways will still run @christinee.schulze and @fadbooks on Instagram, as well as on my Facebook page, Christine E. Schulze. I will also start hosting them here on my blog.
Thanks so much, dear readers!!
Some of you may be familiar with my quarterly newsletter, The FADBooks Review. Some of you may even be subscribers. I am writing this post to announce that as of right now, The FADBooks Review will be no more. Between work, writing, and life, I’ve never had time to keep up with it properly, and it simply isn’t a priority right now. Rather than continuing to send painfully late and uninspired newsletters, I’m giving it the ax, at least for now. Who knows? Perchance it will make sense for me to revive it later on down the road.
However, I WILL be keeping my quarterly give-aways, this time by posting them here on my blog. Give-aways will be posted on or around Dec 21st, March 21st, June 21st, and Sep 21st and will run for the full quarter. Readers can just leave a comment on the give-away post to enter to win!
More good stuff coming up: I just published the special illustrated edition of my interracial fairy tale novella, One Starry Knight. I’ll be showing it off tomorrow as I sign books at Lebanon, Illinois’ annual May Market–while cosplaying my character Evren, of course. Stay tuned for pics from the event!
On that note, God bless, happy reading, and may you all be inspired!

For those of you not familiar with my Instagram and Facebook pages, start getting familiar!! I’ve been hosting monthly give-aways for my paperbacks the past few months and am excited to continue doing so. In addition, I will soon start creating special monthly coupons for my ebooks on Smashwords. This might include coupons for discounted ebooks or even FREE ebooks, depending on the book of the month. This is a great way to sample some of my writing for cheap or even FREE, a great idea for new readers as well as being a nice deal for faithful fans. Smashwords offers ebooks in a wide variety of formats so whether you have a tablet or are reading on a dino computer like me, you should be able to find something to suit your needs!!
To enter my monthly give-aways and keep a lookout for those ebook coupons, follow me on the following:
